The science of fluctuation-induced interactions, also generally known as Casimir interactions, is a fast evolving interdisciplinary field of research worldwide, ranging from quantum physics, condensed-matter, and nanotechnology, all the way to chemistry and biology. This PASI will bring together a team of top researchers and lecturers, postdocs, and advanced graduate students to engage in state-of-the-art training and discussions. This school and workshop will provide a unique environment for a productive interdisciplinary exchange of ideas among lecturers and participants. The latest advances and innovations in analytical techniques, numerical algorithms, and experimental measurement techniques will be discussed. Topics of the school will include Casimir theory and experiments, quantum friction, quantum plasmonics, and atom-surface Casimir interactions.
